    Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico Hospitalized After Assassination Attempt

    Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico was shot and hospitalized following an assassination attempt during a cabinet meeting in the central town of Handlova. The incident has sent shockwaves through Slovakia and garnered international condemnation.

    Moments after the attack, visuals captured the aftermath as Fico’s bodyguards swiftly moved him inside his armored limousine for protection. Reports indicate that the suspected gunman has been apprehended by the police.

    Details emerging from the scene suggest that Fico sustained multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the abdomen and another to the head, leaving him in serious condition. The swift response of his security detail likely prevented further harm to the Prime Minister.

    EU chief Ursula von der Leyen swiftly condemned the attack, labeling it a “vile” act of violence that has no place in society and undermines democracy. She expressed solidarity with Fico and his family during this challenging time.

    Slovak President Zuzana Caputova echoed these sentiments, denouncing the attack as “brutal and reckless.” She extended her wishes for Fico’s speedy recovery and emphasized the need to address such acts of violence that threaten the democratic fabric of the country.

    The incident has prompted widespread concern and calls for unity and stability in Slovakia. Investigations into the motive and circumstances surrounding the assassination attempt are ongoing, with authorities working to ensure the safety and security of all citizens and leaders.
